Actor Miles Teller, best known for his roles in “Whiplash,” “Fantastic Four,” and “Divergent,” was arrested over the weekend after being spotted by police swaying and falling on the street. He was taken into custody for Public Drunkenness.

Police arrested the 30-year-old on Sunday per San Diego Police officer Billy Hernandez’s statement. The police force in the area added that they questioned Teller at around 12:30 a.m. He reportedly spent the night at a club with a group of his guy friends when police spotted him.

Police noted he showed signs of being intoxicated such as having slurred speech and difficulties standing up straight. Other sources claimed when police officers tried to detain him; he almost fell into the street where cars were passing by. Police added, “At that point, it was determined he was unable to care for his own well-being.”

In San Diego, the law provides that a person arrested for public drunkenness can sleep for four hours if they follow directions of the police.

This method is called Detox. Police said choosing Detox does not affect a person’s record as it will not count as an arrest.

It is unclear if this was the option selected by Teller. Other sources said when the actor was taken to the Detox Center, he was uncooperative with the staff that is why he was rejected. He was reportedly put in jail for suspicion of public intoxication after that and was released without bail after four hours.

Miles Teller denies public intoxication report

The actor took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to defend himself and say that there is no truth regarding the reports. He said in his tweet that he went to San Diego to see his friend before he got deployed. He added he was not arrested and was only detained because there was no evidence to charge him with a crime.

It seems many believe the actor as his tweet has more than 210,000 retweets and more than 1.7 million likes.

He followed up his first tweet with a post that says:

More on Teller, he stars in the new flick called "Thank You for Your Service." A news publication posted on the actor's Twitter account the trailer showing his character in the movie:
